Information om forskning och undervisning

Michael Egerer's research interests address gambling, gambling regulations and the concept of addiction. The research projects he is currently working on concern the implications of neuroscientific addiction research, the opening of the new casino in Tampere, and the future of the Finnish gambling regulation. While mastering a wide selection of methodologies, Egerer is an expert in the focus group technique. He is developing the application of sociological systems theory in the field of addiction and gambling research and together with two colleagues, he has recently published an article on this matter. Egerer is co-author and co-editor of two international books on gambling policy and regulation. He is the vice-chair of the Finnish Association for Alcohol, Drug and Gambling Research.
